The Resilience of Running

In This Episode

The Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon has long been a Boston qualifying event, but after the Boston Marathon was also targeted by terrorism in 2013, the two races now share a unique bond, forged by tragedy, determination and hope. Boston Marathon Race Director Dave McGillivray joins us to recount the moments and days after the bombs went off at the finish line. He also shares why he’s run this iconic race 50 times and how the entire racing community became “Boston Strong.”

Then, from professional Olympic runners like Joan Benoit Samuelson to first-time marathoners, pacers can help you keep a specific time or even set a new PR. And Red Coyote pacers Mike Sullivan and Josh Lacan are here to explain how.

And last, the Memorial Marathon has a new and improved process for gear check this year. Find out what to expect and why it’s more convenient from the Mobile Locker Company’s Laura Driscoll.

Plus, Race Director Kari Watkins catches up with Governor Kevin Stitt after the recent Governor’s Training Run.
